A crowd of nearly 700 fathers and sons filled the Lethbridge Community College auditorium to capacity Saturday night for the third edition of the LDS Father and Son Athletic Awards Banquet. Featureed speaker Hack Miller, a veteran of 37 years in the sports writing business, chose a moving story of heroism in Vietnam as his message. Miller is the author of a book on his life-long friend, professional golfer Billy Casper, He and Casper have toured Vietnam together and it was on one of these tours that he was part of the story he related about Congressional Medal of Honor winner Bernie Fisher. Fisher risked his life in the rescue of a downed pilot while under heavy enemy fire, Having covered almost every major sporting event in the world, Miller still enjoys sport, in particular golf, and possesses a fine wit, Other guest celebrities at the head table included master of ceremonies Ron Watmough, Montreal Expo Ron Brand, Gig Perez of the Calgary Stamped, ers, president of the Alberta Basketball Association Doug Clark, rodeo champion Malcolm Jones, Ernie Lopez, the No. three welterweight boxer in the world and ex-boxer Eddie LeBaron,  The highlight of the banquet was the presentation of the Percy Butler Memorial Trophy to Kay Jensen, chosen as the LDS sportsman of the year for his untiring work in the sporting activities of the Church, usually behind the scenes. Bob Ellis Jr., a standout in basketball and volleyball, was named the LDS junior athlete of the year while Harlan Borg-gard Sr. was presented with the senior athlete award for his fine efforts in softball, basketball and volleyball, Special presentations were made to Myron (Jiggs) Fletcher and Ron Watmough, Alan Braithwaite received a baseball autographed by the Montreal Expos. Ron Brand, the diminutive "Mr. Hustle" of the Expos, told the gathering of a baseball player who did not have a great command of the language and introduced Stan Musial as a "great immoral". He also spoke of the tremendous responsibility the Expos have in representing Canada in the world of major league baseball He had a message for the youth, telling them that "one never succeeds to the fullest until he has given more than he has to in order to achieve his goal." Each year the banquet honors a southern Alberta LDS sportsman for Ms work in sports. Doug Clark was so hon ored this year. He expressed of the mind was even more serious. "You get out of life what you're willing to put into it" he said. Gig Perez, a rookie defensive back with the Calgary Stam- peders won the applause of the fathers and sons with his humorous stories about football. He stated that he had little trouble with his coaches because he al- ways did what they asked him [ came many adversities and fi to do. nally made his way into boxing.

His father had deserted the family while he was young. He felt that the guiding hand of a loving father would have kept him out of trouble as a youth, Mayor A. C. (Andy) Anderson welcomed the head table and those present on behalf of the city of Lethbridge. Master of ceremonies Ron Watmough handled the proceedings in a more than capable and humorous fashion. The banquet chairman was Bill Binning. The banquet capped off two days of activities. Friday night Hack Miller showed slides of his trip into Siberia and a film of Ernie Lopez' fight with Hedgemon Lewis was also shown. Saturday afternoon there was a press conference and � boxing exhibition by Ernie Lopez, Eddie LeBaron, Max Gibb and the boys of the Dr. Alan Dudley family. TROPHY WINERS - Three major award s highlighted the annual LDS Father and Son banquet Saturday evening. Receiving trophies were, left to right, Kay Jensen, Bob Ellis Sr., who accepted for his ton, and Har Ian Borrgard Sr. Chatting with the winner* is featured speaker Harold (Hack) Miller. 'Ali not the best ever' By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer The beauty of informality is that everyone gets a chance to have a word. Such was the case Saturday afternoon as the third annual his gratitutde to the gathering | LDS Father and Son Awards for the honor, not only to him. self, but to basketball. Doug's devotion to basketball has helped keep the sport alive in Alberta. The president of the Canadian Rodeo Cowboy Association, Malcolm Jones, spoke of the challenge a rodeo cowboy faces. He pointed out that cowboys have no guranteed wage, as in other sports. His humorous stories about rodeo showed what little thought the cowboy gives to injury in bis violent profession. Eddie Le Baron, now a successful businessman in California, reminisced about his youth in Barnwell and his start in boxing in southern Alberta. He told ttie fathers and sons that the pollution of the environment was serious, but that pollution Banquet press conference was held. All of the head table guests, with a couple of late arrivals to keep the conference going, were at the gathering and answered questions from representatives of the news media and then from an informal gathering of interested sports fans. Harold (Hack) Miller held most of the spotlight. His 37 years as a sports writer caught the lions share of the attention and like major league infielder he fielded each and every ques tion without hesitation. He was quick to make it clear his nickname Hack had nothing to do with his golf. It was the way he played basketball that brought about the spare name. Miller was joined at the head table by Ron Brand of the Mon-, treal Expos, Gig Perez of the Calgary Stampeders, Doug Clark Lethbridge sportsman, fighter Ernie Lopez, Eddie LeBaron, a former southern Alberta amateur boxer and rodeo champion Malcolm Jones. Miller possesses a wide knowledge of every major sport in the world with the exception of hockey but he assured the gathering he was learning. He said it may take awhile as the Salt Lake City Golden Eagles have yet to set any worlds on fire. The Eagles are in the Western Hockey League. What about Muhhamad Ali? Miller feels he can name 10 heavyweights he thinks were better. "He's not as good as people make him out to be." It was interesting to note that Lopez, a world ranked middleweight, agreed with Miller to an extent. "I think Frazier will stop Ali," said Lopez. "Ali can be thankful he didn't fight Frazier in his last fight." Frazier and Ali are scheduled to meet March 8 in Madison Square Garden in a fight that has all pre-bout figures out of proportion. Some feel the fight could gross over twenty million dollars. Perez, after some adjust, merits to the game is proud to be in the Canadian Football League and why not he pointed out. "I was on the Western champions and got into a Grey Cup in my rookie season. That's not bad is it?" Ron Brand, with a build that resembles a backstop that can throw, feels the Expos can improve over last season and he said the objective of the club was to play .500 ball or better. "If we win more games and still finish last in our division I think it will still be an improvement." The questions came In rapid order and time quickly went by. There wasn't time to get all the answers. Like all good things Saturday's gathering came to an end. St. Basil's clobber Cliinooks The St. Basil's Saints took over sole position of second place in the City Recreation Hockey League as they clobbered the league leading University of Lethbridge Chinooks 7-2 Staiday afternoon. The contest which was originally scheduled for February 11, 1971 allowed the Saints to break away from the M and K Generals who will be able to regain the second place tie with a victory over Purity Bottling tonight. In yesterday's encounter both clubs banged in a goal each in the opening period but the Saints came on strong in the second as they slapped in three unanswered goals. Bob Balazs, Brian Murkin and Dick Cusson all rapped in two goals apiece for the Saints while Garry Canadine chipped in with a singleton. For the Chinooks James Stewart and Jerry LeGrandeur managed a goal each. The two clubs split the li minor penalties called. The standings shown do not include Sunday's game.

It wasn't Dave Balon Day at New York's Madison Square Garden, but the 32-year-old winger from Wakaw, S'ask., still responded with four goals in a 6-2 Ranger victory against Minnesota North Stars. Green, out the entire 1969-70 National Hockey League season with a skull fracture, returned to the Bruins' blueline corps this season. He was honored prior to the Montreal-Boston game, receiving, among other gifts, a station wagon and color television set. Even the Canadiens, against whom Green has been his most aggressive during his 10-ycar NHL career, got into the act. They presented the St. Boniface, Man., defenceman with a silver tray with the engraved names of the Montreal team. , _ But it was Orr who carved out the victory, scoring his 20th goal of the season and setting up two others as the Bruins maintained their three-point lead in the East Division over New York. In other Sunday games, Buffalo Sabres rapped Philadelphia Flyers 6-4, Detroit Red Wings dumped Vancouver Canucks 7-3 with five goals during a span of seven minutes in the third period, and Chicago Black Hawks trimmed California Golden Seals 5-3. In Saturday games, Montreal trimmed Detroit 6-2, Los Angeles Kings nipped Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2, Boston riddled Chicago 6-2, St. Louis Blues downed Buffalo 7-1, Pittsburgh Penguins defeated Vancouver 4-1 and Minnesota played a 2-2 standoff with Philadelphia. Chicago is at Vancouver for the only game Tuesday night. Orr's output gave the defend, ing scoring champion 77 points in 46 games. But he still trails team-mate Phil Esposito, who notched his 44th goal, by 13 points in this year's scoring race. Balon, who now has 29 goals and is second in that department to Esposito, scored once in each of the first two periods and twice in the final 20 minutes. Although he shuns slap shots, Balon was aware he could become one of the few NHLers to score five in one game when he whistled a slap shot at the Minnesota goal. "It didn't go in. But it hit Ted I Harris (Minnesota defenceman) Leafs given until today TORONTO (CP) - Lawyer Alan Eagleson said Sunday that unless Toronto Maple Leafs signify by today their plans for his client, centre Mike Walton, he will call a news conference for 4 p.m. EST to announce what action he plans against the National Hockey League club. Walton, 26, has not been with the club since Dec. 2, 1970. An independent psychiatrist, commissioned by the NHL, indicated Walton must be traded to another club if he is to play and regain his health. The player is reported recovering from  depressive illness, Eagleson said he spoke with NHL president Clarence Campbell during the weekend and that Campbell said be would speak with Leaf management today. Leafs, who originally suspended Walton before the NHL ordered his reinstatement, still nave the player on their psyroll. and knocked him out of the game." The victory ended a four-game winless string for the Rangers which included two ties. Veteran Don Marshall's two goals in the second period when the Sabres scored four times spearheaded the victory at Buffalo. Rene LeClerc and Tom Webster sparked Detroit's home-ice win with two goals each. The Red Wings broke Uie game open with five straight goals in the penalty-riddled third period, including LeClerc's two. At 16:12 of the final period, players on the ice became em. broiled in a free-for-all. Rosaire Paiement and Danny Seguin of Vancouver were ejected from the game along with Detroit's Garry Hart, Gary Bergman and Ron Harris while Canucks' Murray Hall took a misconduct penalty from the same melee.
